VOLUML LXXI. NUMBER 9 



WELLESLEY, MASSACHUSETTS 



Security force on campus proves inadequate, inefficient 
Standard procedures and reporting system needed 



NOVI MHI-.R 22. 1974 



Wellesley College: a lovely pastoral campus with 
beautiful gothic buildings, and 480 acres of field, forest, and 
ponds. And, to cap off the fairy tale, to make the at- 
mosphere complete, Wellesley College is guarded by an 
army of toy soldiers. 

To the noniniliate, our security force appears legitimate. 
They wear blue uniforms, badges, police caps, and some of 
them even carry standard police revolvers. But somehow. 
Security is not functioning properly at Wellesley. A 
Wellesley student whose car has been vandalized, or who 
h;is been frightened while walking on campus,, finds little 

A Wellesley student whose car has been van- 
dalized, or who has been frightened while walking 
on campus, finds little comfort at the sight of a 
Smith and Wesson in the holster of a 63 year old 

man. 



comfort at the sight of a Smith and Wesson in the holster of 
a 63 year old man (or a younger man for that matter). 

Ii is not enough to state merely that our Security force is 
inadequate. An extensive investigation into the real 
problems behind the failure of Security to perform well at 
Wellesley reveals a number of pressing problems. 

First, there are problems with the dissemination of infor- 
mation from the Security Office to the students and the 
College community as a whole. It has been the practice of 
Security to "bury" all reports filed pertaining to crimes on 
campus. As a result, most students are unaware of some of 
(he real dangers that exist on campus. Even when students 
know for a fact that some crime has been committed, 
Security will not supply any additional information to the 
students, for what seems to us to be specious reasons. If 
reports about crimes on campus, particularly thefts and 
rapes were made public, with adequate protection for the 



physically incapable of handling a typical college emergen- 
cy. Also, incompetent administration of the Security force 
makes filing complaints and other dealings with the Securi- 
ty Department that much more difficult. 

Another case: A student has a friend out for the weekend. 
He leaves his gold pen in her car and does not have the key 
with which to open it. As he stands by the car peering in, a 
Security guard walks up. The young man explains his 
predicament. "Well, you see, officer, that's my pen, and 
I've got to get it out." And our friendly Security guard un- 
bends a hanger and helps the owner of the pen to break into 
his friend's car. No questions asked. A remarkable exhibi- 
tion of naivete and a lack of professionalism. 

Conclusion Number Two 

There are no established procedures by which the Securi- 
ty guards can proceed about their jobs. Are we really to be 
expected to feel secure when outrageous events like the 
above occur? Not that such outrages are common oc- 
currences, but even if it happens once, such behavior is in- 
tolerable. 

This past week, Case Number Three arose. At least three 
cars in Alumnae parking lot were vandalized. Students 
were incensed, and justifiably so. The three-wheeled patrol 
vehicle is out of commission, and the only patrolling of- 
ficers are sitting together in the same cruiser. Students 
argue that if they have to pay $40.00 a semester for 
snowplowing and security in their parking lots, that such 
services are provided. Security officers are always around 
to hand out parking tickets for stickerless cars, but are 
never around when the same cars are being smashed. 

Conclusion Number Three 

Either we need more guards out on patrol, or we should 
not have to pay for nonexistant security in our parking lots. 

Take the young guards out of the kiosks and send them 
oilt around the campus, leaving the sedentary jobs to the 




privacy of the students involved, then many of us could have 
a more realistic attitude towards solo walks around the 
lake, or late night jaunts to Alumnae parking lot. 

The Security officers are attending State Police classes 
this year. After speaking with many of the guards we are 
convinced that these classes have their value (we did not 
think so at first). However, it is hoped that aside from 
ballistics training and lessons in stake-out techniques, that 
»>ur Security force will learn how to deal with some typical- 
ly Wellesley problems: the mean drunk at a dorm party, or 
'he petty theft from a dormitory room. 

A few examples of Security inefficiency clearly illustrate 
•he need for some sort of change: 

It has been the practice of Security to "bury" all 
reports filed pertaining to crime on campus. 



even a holstered gun bad 
slopped fights before they 
could even begin. It is an un- 
fortunate statement about 
our limes if a gun, rather 
than the threat of ejection or 
arrest has become the re- 
quisite deterrent. 

We would like to see ar- 
ticulated an official College 
policy on the Security 
handguns. Policy decisions 
and procedures should not 
be left up to the individual 
officer's discretion. This 
requires more amicable 
relationships between Mr. 
Hapenny and his officers. 

A few of the problems 
between Mr. Hapenny and 
his officers involve publicity 
of Security activities and 
pay-raise demands by a few 
guards, who feel that they 
deserve higher wages for 
higher training. (They now 



earn around $150-5160 per week, compared to a base paj al 
Harvard of $10,900 per year). 



Some of our Security guards are too old, or 
otherwise physically incapable of handling a typical 
college emergency. 



The publicity problem affects all of us directly. One 
guard told NEWS that he was forbidden to write a letter to 
the Editor explaining a specific incident on campus, and the 
Security action taken at the time. We were warned 
repeatedly as we researched this editorial that to mention 
any guard's name or to make apparent his identity would 



result in the loss of his job. We feel that this sort or 
Watergate attitude towards open communications has no 
place on Wellesley campus. We already have been suf- 
ficiently stonewalled in Green Hall — we don't need more 
of the same from the Physical Plant Building. 




L^st year al Beebe, a group of males (nonstudents) began 
>o threaten other guests at a dorm party. One, in particular, 
w as obnoxiously drunk and proceeded to attack a musician 
discharge a fire extinguisher at a woman, and grab at 
several others. Calls were placed to Security's emergency 
tension. Two rather elderly guards appeared, and, as they 
f elt they were incapable of subduing the young man, they 
s 'ood and watched as he resumed his abuse of the musician 
°«her people present at the party offered to assist the of- 
ficers in escorting the young man from the dorm but the oi- 
lers chose not to get involved. Several complaints were 
la 'er filed against the officers. Finally, this semester, the 
same fellow was arrested in Schneider for trespassing and 
disorderly conduct. 

Conclusion Number One 

Some of our Security guards are too old. or otherwise 



older officers. 

Internal Squabbles Hurt, Too 

Not only are the problems with Security related to the 
students on campus, but there are internal problems with 

Security that impair their functioning at an efficient level. Hopefully. Security will respond to this editorial. ex- 
After speaking with a number of Security guards, it is hard plaining their operations more fully and providing the

seems even less clear to the 
guards themselves. At 
Framingham State, a far 
more urbanized and 
therefore "dangerous" cam- 
pus, students voted to forbid 
their guards to carry guns. 
By all accounts, no guard at 
Wellesley has ever used or 
even drawn his gun or billy 
club. One officer feels that 
some of the guards are not 
to be trusted with guns ... a 
sad verdict. Others explain 
that the gun serves as a 
valuable deterrent when an 
officer is performing his 
duties on campus. One said, 
"When I walk into a 
building at night where a 
door has been suspiciously 
opened, my gun is my only 
protection." Another said

WELLESLEY NEWS 



Ads express different views; 
Revenues keep NEWS alive 

In the past couple of weeks, NEWS has received severa. 
letters to the Editor concerning the allegedly sexist quality 
of some of our advertisements. No one on the NEWS staff^ 
would disagree with the letters' basic premises. However, 
it is a hasic rule of journalism that one does not edit the 
ads. 

The Wellesley NEWS received last spring a budget of 
$12,000 for what has become (as a result of a 10% rise in 
printing costs over the summer), a $15,000 operation. We 
desperately need advertising revenues in order to continue 
to publish. Already this semester we have had to run two 
six-page issues instead of the regular eight-pager ... solely 
lor financial reasons. Running abbreviated issues means 
drastic copy editing and a shortage of room for special an- 
nouncements. Administrators and other groups on cam- 
pus send dozens of announcements to the NEWS each 
week. When we have no room to print these "boxes," we 
are distressed and you are inconvenienced. 

Advertising keeps almost every newspaper alive, and 
allows them to be sold inexpensively to the public. Most 
newspapers would not, and could not, survive without 
.ldvertising revenues. 

I or these reasons, most newspapers are willing to 
separate their editorial policy from their advertising 
policies. We, too, must continue to allow advertisements 
which express different philosophies from our own to 
appear in the NEWS. 

By a vote of the editorial board earlier this year, we 
have ceased to publish any ads from term-paper "fac- 
lories/' This, however, is an entirely separate issue. Sell- 
ing term papers in a college newspaper flaunts the Honor 
Code at Wellesley outright. Publishing an allegedly sexist 
ad simply does not have the same moral implications. 

We believe that the quality of the NEWS has improved 
this'scmester, particularly with the inclusion of an Op-Ed 
page and a rull-sized Sports pages. But these innovations 
require funding, some of which we must obtain from 
advertising revenues. 

Who is Film Society? 

Many of the movies presented (usually once a week) by 
Film Society have been popular ones, drawing large 
audiences to 112 Pendleton East. Certainly attendance 
v.ines according to personal preferences and time of year, 
bui the point is that a large segment of the student body 
sees and enjoys these films. 

Because so many are interested in the offerings of Film 
Society, it would seem that a great deal of student input 
went into the selection of the films shown. This is not so. 

Last year one person each semester chose what was to 
he presented to the student body. It may be true that a 
committee of students would never be able to find a selec- 
tion of movies that would please everyone, but the chances 
of approximating that kind of student satisfaction are 
radically diminished when only one or two students pick 
out the films. 

h K h c^c Cie,y ' S a cons,iluted sludent organization fund- 
ed by SOFC. It remains a mystery to most people just who 
runs ,t. When booths for student organizations were set up 
al Schneider Center at the beginning of the year, no Film 
Soccti booth could be found. Anonymous notices an- 
nounce the lime and place of showings. Is there any reason 
lor this mystery? 

Next semester the extradepartmental film course will

Letters to the Editor 



Hathaway ad lacks 
Any sexist overtones 



To The Editor: 

I am wriling in response to the 
letters of Patricia Hamme; and 
Sarah Russ in the Nov. 15 issue, 
charging Hathaway House with 
sexism in the ad published in the 
NEWS the week before. I, too, 
noticed that ad in the Nov. 8 issue, 
but after taking a second look, I 
realized that by "fascinating 
men," they were referring to the 
enigmatic creatures which can be 
found in science fiction books (if 
you looked closely enough, you 
might have noticed that the Mar- 
tian was browsing through the 
science fiction section of the 
store). 

I seriously doubt that 
Hathaway is implying that 
Wcllcslev women arc dissatisfied 
with the overabundance of mixers 
that we have access to and certain- 
ly (hopefully anyway) most of us 
don't go to Hathaway with (he 
hope of meeting fascinating men 
(unless of course, they are 
characters in a book). 

I think the NEWS was fully 
justified in printing this ad 
because, taken in its contc\t, it is 
neither sexist nor insulting. Cer- 
tainly there are more pressing 



concerns plaguing the world today 
(including more blatantly 
chauvinistic propaganda) thun a 
mere ambiguous ad for a 
bookstore. And, in regards to the 
"adding insult to injury" charge, 
surely we are not so proud that we 
cannot put up with the twenty- 
minute wait in line or the other in- 
efficiencies that go along with a 
small college bookstore (be 
thankful you don't go to a 20,000 
sludent state university). I, for 
one, would like to see increased 
input into more worthwhile and 
pressing causes than a petty adver- 
tisement which was not intended 
to have sexist overtones. 
Sincerely, 
Sarah Hosmer '77

To the Editor: 

The November 8 issue of the 
NEWS explicitly stated that it 
feels "it has a responsibility as a 
source (perhaps one or the few) of 
correct information on this cam- 
pus." Because of both their fine 
rceord.of raising issues, that are in 
need of public attention, and their 
staled claim, 1 feel compelled to 
bring to the community's alien- 
lion that last week's editorial on 
Senate attendance presented inac- 
curate information and offered an 
extremely unfair opinion of a 
member of the Senate Executive 
Board. 

The premise or the editorial is a 
worthy one. that attendance at 
Senate meetings is a basic respon- 
sibility of elected sludent 
represenlalivcs; the shirking of 



that responsibility is detrimental 
to the runclioning or Senate. It 
seems, however, thai the Tacts and 
focus or the otherwise sound 
editorial arc in need of correction. 

First, it Is true that members of 
Senate periodically demonstrate 
tardiness, and frequently when 
Senate meetings run past 7:15 
p.m.. some Senate members make 
for the door. It is precisely for this 
reason that Senate adopted a 
quorum ruling — without it, the 
transaction or Senate business 
would be constantly al the mercy 
or such "erratic attendance." 

But just how erratic is Senate 
attendance? And is it fair to label 
all absenteeism as irresponsible 
behavior? Senate attempts to dis- 
courage the abuse of absenteeism

To the Editor 

In a letter published in NEWS 
November 8. 1974. Ms Krislalia 
Slavrolakis stated her opposition 
to the change in academic legisla- 
tion voted last year by the faculty 
whereby eight of the last sixteen 
umis toward the B.A must be 
taken consecutively al Wellesley. 
She submitted the same letter to 
the Academic Review Board 
which, in response lo her request, 
rcdiscusscd the matter al its 
meeting of November 15, 1974 
and reaffirmed its support of the 
action ol Academic Council in 
voting the new legislation 

I' is the intent of the rule — not 
an undesirable side effect — to 
assure ihai the student who is 
awaj rrom Wellesley in the junior 
year will lake a full normal course- 
load al Wellesley as a senior. The 
faculty wishes to make certain 
that recipients or the Wellesley 
B.A. degree have done a 
reasonable amount of upper-level 
work under the supervision or 
VVellesle\ faculty members. It is 
doublfol that 300-level courses 



taken in Hie sophomore year have 
as much impact on the student's 
mature scholarly development as 
courses taken in the junior and 
senior years 

The only students for whom 
this legislation can in any sense be 
considered "discriminatory" arc 
some members or the Class or 
1975 like Miss Slavrolakis, who 
were away last year when the new 
rule was approved. One or the 
reasons lor having an Academic 
Review Board is to permil excep- 
tionsto academic legislation, and 
the Board has already given 
favorable consideration to several 
individual requests for exceptions. 

II is important to realize thai 
the Academic Review Board does 
nol make policy in such mailers 
'I carries out the policies which

amounted to almost $900, which 
was sufficient to maintain opera- 
tion through the remainder of last 
semester and most of this 
semester. This money has now run 
out. 

As stipulated in the original 
agreement, the On-Campus Af- 
fairs Committee and SOFC will, 
within the next few weeks, request 
an evaluation of WBS-News from 
the campus community. In the in- 
terim. WBS-News will receive 
operating money from the Senate 
until December, allowing a 
tenuous existence at best. 

As a matter of expediency, 
WBS-News and its money 
problems were overshadowed in 
the recent controversy over FM. 
Funding for the FM was complex 
enough without the expense or a 
teletype adding to the confosion in 
people's minds. Now, though, FM 
will be a reality. The station will 
have the opportunity to serve the 
college and local communities as 
it never could with its limited AM 
equipment. WBS-News is an im- 
portant part or this new commit- 
ment. A viable news source is 
necessary to the balanced 
programming WBS-FM intends 
to provide to its expanded 
listenership. WBS-News also acts 
as an educational resource 
providing experience in broadcast 
journalism for its members 



two unexcused absences from 
Senate meetings, per semester, 
are permitted. This applies to of- 
ficers as well as representatives. 
Senate members who willfully 
neglect their basic responsibility 
to attend meetings must be 
prepared to be removed from or- 
fice. 

Second, it is true that the Chier 
Justice (Senate's Parliamen- 
tarian) has absented herseirdue to 
illness on one occasion this rail, 
and she has been forced to arrive 
late lo meetings in several in- 
stances due to pressing and rele- 
vant judicial business. But it is 
utterly raise to label this "erratic 
attendance" as ir the- Chief 
Justice's sense or responsibility 
did nol dictate her presence when 
it is at all possible. 

Further, it is extremely unfair 
to attribute the length and com- 
plexity of recent Senate meetings 
(meetings at which controversial 
and sometime complicated 
legislation is pending) to the pur- 
ported absence or the parliamen- 
tarian. It is one thing to suggest 
editorially that Senate's 
parlimcntarian could be more 
•vigorous or aggressive in her 
rulings, it is quite another to im- 
pune the seriousness with which 
she takes her office. It seems to 
me no small allegation to suggest 
that such an officer is one ol" 
several "glaring examples of 
irresponsibility" in Senate.

Wmole universities. Then he 
tu ickly adds that this should not

ment. It wasn't. 

THE SCENE— Fall. 1974. A 
futst speaker, when asked for his' 
opinion of Wellesley students. 
usis the word "docile." The 
professors around him smile 
knowingly and nod. 



Professors can wield a great 
deal of power. They can shape the 
style of an institution by putting a 
premium on certain actions or 
areas. A lack of understanding, a 
difference in communication 
levels between students and 
professors can be translated into 
poor grades. As graduate schools 
become more competitive and 
students more grade conscious, 
this aspect of education will 
become increasingly important. 

Even now students should be 
and are asking, what do teachers 
think of us? How are their concep- 
tions or misconceptions influen- 
cing us, molding our future? 

In an effort to scratch the sur- 
face of this problem, twenty-three 
professors were interviewed. The 
professors included were not 
muni lo he representative of the 
faculty Some were chosen be- 
cause they had made controver- 



few years and could offer some 
comparisons. Most were 
suggested by other students. 



The first question raised was 
how do teachers react lo the all- 
female environment. Most 
professors claimed it doesn't in- 
fluence them. None said they felt seniors." 
uncomfortable because of it. A 
leu admitted it was strange in the 
beginning, but they insist they 
quickly grew used to it. 



t<> marry a Harvard Business 
School graduate, then it doesn't 
matter what grades you get. But if 
your goal is law school, it matters 
a great deal." 

Wellesley College is also partly 
responsible she believes. "I think 
it has always been true that many 
people at Wellesley have tried lo 
mold students into a framework. 
It's always been true that 
freshmen are more combative, 
more willing to challenge than 



prevailing style to blurt out 
everything that comes into your 
head." 

Carlos Francois, who has been 
here for twenty-one years, stress- 
ed the changes he has seen at 
Wellesley during that time. He 
told of instances where important 
statesmen came lo Wellesley. "In 
the middle of Iheir speech at 
Alumnae Hall, one could hear 
knitting needles hilling the floor," 
he said. The individual went away 



Reversing the question, few 
male teachers thought their 
students had problems relating to 
or communicating with them 
because they were men. "Most 
students deal with me as a 
professor and as an individual, not 
as a man." said one teacher. 

Those who admitted to having 
dated students said they fell it in 
no way hindered iheir

Philip Bertocci said he at- 
tributes much of the unwillingness 
to challenge to the high opinion 
students have of their professors. 
Professors have what he considers 
lo be a great deal of "illegitimate 
authority." 

"Students seem to believe that 
teachers know such a great deal 
more than ihey, that the distance 
is so great, that ideas they have 
couldn't possibly be right. You 
can get away with a great deal of 
things in a class just by simply 
saying them," said Bertocci. 

"Most of the questions you deal 
with in the social sciences arc

plicit value judgements. We all

into a framework. It's always been true that freshmen are 
more combative, more willing to challenge than seniors." 



spoken. But most hesitated to use 
the word "docile." 

"I think students are more 
grade conscious and career con- 
scious than they were in the six- 
lies," said Ruth A. Putnam, 
Associate Professor of 
Philosophy. "This is largely 
responsible for the feeling that 
students are docile, that they will 
just lake down what you say 
rather than challenge it or its im- 
portance." 

Ms. Putnam feels one reason 
for .this is the women's liberation 
movement. "If your goal in life is

principle, more or less defendablc. 
They are to be debated. Yet 
because the teacher may have 
more command over facts, 
students back off. They assume

superiority, his values are 
superior," Bertocci said. 

Victor Baras agreed thai 
Wellesley students are relatively 
quiet but did not believe it was

with an unflattering image of 
Wellesley women. 

But he believes changes go 
deeper lhan that. "I think lhat 
now minds are more curious," 
said Francois. "This generation is 
much more intellectual. It 
questions much more." 

Blylhe Clinchy has also noticed 
many changes in the six years she 
has been al Wellesley. "When I 
first came here," she said. "I 
found the slerotype of docility was 
prcvclanl," she said. "But during 
ihe time of the Cambodia strikes 
students became more politically 
and intellectually alive, certainly 
more fun to teach." 

"I think this is still the case," 
she continued, "Although 
everyone says the group coming in 
will be more vocationally 
oriented. I don'l know if this new 
'prc-med crowd will be different." 

Ms. Clinchy said she finds her 
present students very serious, in- 
trospective people. 

MosI teachers said lhai 



woman may back off saying, 'oh, 
you're probably right. I guess I 
was wrong," instead of trying to 
stick lo it." 

Related to this, according to 
Kenworlh Moffilt, is the "inabili- 
ty of women in general lo lake 
themselves seriously and to follow 
through." 

While no teacher said they 
would advocate Wellesley going 
coed, a few cautioned lhal because 
Wellesley is an all-female institu- 
tion, it is bound to reflect the 
problems and weaknesses of 
women, perhaps to an ex- 
aggerated degree. 

One female professor pointed 
out lhal "on the one hand, women 
need lo know other women are go- 
ing through the same experiences. 
Hopefully they can provide each 
other with guidance and en- 
couragement." But she added lhal 
she was amazed al the number of 
students who, "in the course of 
pouring out their hearts to me dis- 
played a really irrational resent- 



ment toward men." 

This altitude, while probably 
not Ihe prevalent one al Wellesley, 
does exist among some students. 
But none of the male professors 
questioned said they sensed any 
such resentment directed loward 
Ihem. 

Some said this would not 
become a serious issue because 
they liked iheir students and 
trealcd ihem with respect. They 
said (hat such elements provide 
the framework for a good student- 
teacher relationship regardless of 
sex. 

In general Ihe twenty-three 
professors did not have many 
complaints about Wellesley 
students. Most had some 
criticisms, but only a few felt they 
were a pari of the problem or 
could play a part in the solution. 

Most said they liked and 
respected their students and that 
they enjoyed teaching. One ex- 
tremely candid teacher said it "is 
a real ego trip to have twenty 
sludents furiously writing down 
your every word." 

Only one professor, a woman, 
said that Wellesley is going to 
have to reconsider its policy on 
men in the near future. "As more 
good schools go coed, Wellesley 
will have problems attracting 
good students. I'd hate lo see it 
commit suicide. Is not," she add- 
ed, "feminism possible in a 
heterogenous environment?" 

Most others seemed optimistic 
about Wellesley's survival as a 
women's college ... at least 
through ihe seventies. 



March On November 30 

Coalition Against Racism 



by Jerryanne LaPerriere *76 

My concern right now is the 
ever-present racism which is again 
slapping us in the face wilh its 
presence. A Haitian man was 
driving through South Boston, 
was pulled from his car and nearly 
beaten to death. Black children, 
bused into white neighborhoods lo 
go to school, arc being harassed 
and even beaten daily. This tears 
me up when 1 see liltlc children, 
like my own brothers and sisters, 
being denied a decent education 
because or the color of their skin. 

And why is this happening? 
Because someone, at some point 
in lime, perpetrated the idea thai 
if you had pale skin you were of a 
superior quality of human being, 
and to this day some, many, peo- 
ple believe this inane idea. Well, 
some of us are sick and tired of 
ibis, because of the resultant 
behavior which has gone on for 
centuries — slavery, unfair practic- 
es in employment, pay, education, 
housing, etc., etc. So we're pulling 
an all-out effort into forming a 
coalition against racism, wilh a 
demonstration as a kick-off point. 
From there, different projects will 
gel under way lo continue the 
fight against racism. 

The march is a city-wide group 
and has been called by the 
Massachusetts Alliance Against 



Racism and Oppression. It is be- 
ing endorsed by such people as 
Mel King, Father Drinan, Tom 
Alkins. Rabbi Giddleson. Bill 
Owens, jusl to name a few. The 
march is scheduled for November 
30. which is the Saturday after 
Thanksgiving Day. It will begin at 
1:00 at ihe Boston Commons, will 
proceed down Boylslon St., onto 
Washington ihen lo Government 
Center, ending up at Faneuil Hall. 
Here several speakers from the 
city will rally support from the 
people for integration in schools 
and an ending lo racism. 

Before ihe march, on Ttlesday, 
November 19. there will be a 
press conference at City Hall 
covering the demonstration, ex- 
plaining the goals, etc. A follow- 
up march, national in scope, will 
be held December 14. This has 
been called by Bill Owens and 
others, and will be the second 
project assumed by Mass. 
Alliance and ihe rest of us. More 
concerning this will be available at 
a later date.

WELLESLEY NEWS 



College gives student record guidelines; 
Students may see recommendations 



The following TENTATIVE 
GUIDELINES will become in- 
stitutional practice at the time the 
Family Educational Rights and 
Privacy Act of 1974 goes into 
effect, subject to any 
modifications which may become 
appropriate as a result of judicial 
and federal administrative inter- 
pretations of the Act. 

Questions which arise as to the 
interpretation of these guidelines 
should be referred in the first in- 
stance to the head of the office 
responsible for the given material. 
If questions still remain, the 
President's Office should be con- 
sulted. 

I. The nghis accorded by the Acl 
lo Wellesley College students 
appear lo be accorded only lo 
students currently enrolled al the 
College One is enrolled from the 
lime of entrance to the time of 
withdrawal or graduation; enroll- 
ment continues during leaves of 
absence. 

2. "Official" student records lo 
which ;i Wellesley College student 
may obtain access under the Act, 
subject to exceptions included in 
these guidelines, shall include: 

a) The permanent record card. 
Office of the Recorder. The front 
of the card is the official 
transcript of courses taken and 
credits received; the back contains 
some minimal biographical infor- 
mation. College Entrance Ex- 
amination Board scores, exemp- 
tion examinations taken. 
Academic Review Board action 
concerning the student, notations 
concerning probation or war- 
nings", yearly credit ratios, a 
record of all transcripts sent to 
other institutions or persons, and 
other notations pertinent lo the in- 
terpretation of the permanenl 
record card. 

b) The cumulative student file Of- 
fice of the Deans. This is a folder 
in which are filed transcripts from 
other institutions, certificates in 
'special fields, occasional letters of 
recommendations submitted in 
addition lo teachers" reports at the 
time ol application for admission, 
copies of official letters and 
memos to and from the student, 
deans and faculty members, oc- 
casional letters of recommenda- 
tion from employers outside the 
institution, and any other material 
about the student which may be 
deposited with the class deans of 
with the Recorder. 

c) The admission dossier. Admis- 
sion Office. This dossier includes 
the student's application, 
biographical statemenl, College 
Entrance Examination Scores, 
advanced placement scores. 
National Merit scores, school 
transcripts, secondary school 
teacher's reports, and guidance 
counselor's report. 

d) The dean's card. Office or the 
Deans, which is in large part a 
duplication of information from 
the permanent record card. It con- 
tains in addition the student's dor- 
mitory address, occasional ex- 
tracurricular activities, name of 
the major advisor, and dales of in- 



firmary admission, 
c) The file, if any, initiated by the 
student at the Career Services Of- 
fice, including a registration card, 
a record of contact with the office, 
and letters of recommendation. 

f) Records which have generally 
been available for inspection by 
the student in the past, such as 
rooming cards in the Residence 
office, student loan account 
statements in the Bursary, address 
and program cards in the Infor- 
mation Bureau, registration of 
motor vehicles and bicycles in the 
Security Office. 

The following records, among 
others, do not appear to be open 
to student inspection under the 
Act: 

a) Personal medical and psy- 
chiatric histories and treatment 
records. At Wellesley, these 
records are entirely confidential 
between doctor and patient, as in 
private practice, and are made 
available to others only when 
released by the student. Health 
data which are incorporated into 
official student records such as 
those described above, appear to 
be within the Law's requirements 
of student access. 

b) Information supplied by a 
parent or guardian to the Finan- 
cial Aid Officer on financial 
matters. This information is con- 
sidered confidential between the 
parent and the College and not 
directly related to the student. 

c) Personal notes kept by faculty 
members, deans of counselors in 
their individual capacities for 
their own use. These notes would 
become subject lo student access 
under the Act if written into an of- 
ficial record such as those describ- 
ed above. 

3- The Acl does not prohibit the 
destruction of records which no 
longer serve any useful purpose. 
The heads of record-keeping of- 
fices, in consultation with their 
advisory committees, if any, may 
establish procedures to be applied 
on a uniform basis for the destruc- 
tion of such records. 

4. A student may inspect material 
belonging to her official records 
only at the office which is accoun- 
table for the maintenance of that 
material. Each office has respon- 
sibility for establishing its own 
access procedures, which may in- 
clude the submission of a writlen 
request by the student. An office 
may require thai the student in- 
spect the record only with the 
head of the office present to inter- 
pret it. The Act allows 45 days 
from the lime that a request is fil- 
ed until it must be complied with. 

5. Where an official records of the 
College includes references lo 
more than one student (e.g., a 
grade sheet, a departmental 
recommendation concerning 
several candidates for a 
fellowship), the individual student 
has the right only to that part of 
the records whjch pertains to her. 
The Acl specifies that in such 
cases the student must receive or 



be informed of the information, 
not (hat he or she must be allowed 
lo inspect it. 

6. The College will no longer 
solicit letters of recommendation, 
interview reports, instructor's 
comments on poor work, and 
other cvaluatory material under 
an assurance of confidentiality for 
the evaluator. All evaluatory 
material in the future will be open 
lo inspection by the individual stu- 
dent once it has been placed inlo 
an official records. 

7. To ihe extent retained by the 
College, letters of recommenda- 
tion, instructor's comments, and 
other materials obtained or re- 
quested under an explicit or im- 
plicit understanding of confiden- 
tiality prior to the time the Acl 
goes inlo effect will be made 
available to (he student if and 
when permission for access is 
granted by their authors. The stu- 
dent who wishes access to such 
material will be provided with 
prcaddresscd release forms to be 
given or mailed to the author of 
each document. When the signed 
release is received by the relevant 
office, the student will be notified 
and may inspect the material. 

8. Most official student records 
kept by academic departments are 
duplications of material held 
elsewhere. Students requesting 
access lo duplicate material 
should be referred to the office of- 
ficially responsible for it. In case 
of doubt, the department chair- 
man should consult with the rele- 
vant office head, or with the Of- 
fice of ihe Presidenl, for advice as 
to how lo proceed. 

9. The Acl requires that a written 
record be kept of access by third 
parlies (e.g. parent, an employer, 
another student) to files on a stu- 
dent or information therein; it 
also requires that Ihe student fur- 
nish a written release before such 
files or information can be shown 
or sent to certain third parties. 
The Acl docs not require the 
student's prior consent lo the 
release of such files or informa- 
tion lo Wellesley College faculty 
members or administrators who 
have a "legitimate educational in- 
terest" in seeing the material, or 
to certain other persons, agencies, 
and organizations specified in the 
Act. Access and release forms are 
being prepared and will be provid- 
ed for those college offices which 
keep student files. 

10. Because of the protections 
from third party access which are 
written inlo Ihe Acl, the College 
will no longer automatically send 
a transcript of a student's perma- 
nent records to the parents or 
guardian of the studenl when the 
student is warned, placed on 
probation or dismissed by the 
Academic Review Board. The 
transcript (and an explanatory 
letter) will be sent if the student 
authorizes its release; otherwise, 
only a more general notification 
of the student's status will be fur- 
nished.

CG questions security 



by Lin Frackman 76 

Senate passed a motion re- 
questing a report from Security in 
its meeting on Monday night. In 
the past few weeks, there have 
been a large number of incidents 
where cars in the Alumnae Hall 
parking lot have been stolen or 
damaged. Martha Casey, '77, 
asked that Security report on 
what they have been doing for the 
past week, and mention specific 
incidents on the Wellesley cam- 
pus. 

Florence Davis. '76, CG rep 
from Beebe, reported that the 
Commission on Community Life 
is investigating the problem of 
security on this campus. She 
emphasized that all students 
should know what happens on 
campus from theft to rape. 

Ms. Beltina Blake, Dean of 
Academic Programs, annognced 
that Academic Council will vote 
on Thursday on the guidelines for 
studenl records. She said that the 
bill allowing students lo see their 
records (passed last summer) is in 
itself ambiguous, and it is difficult 
for the Administration to inter- 
pret it. The Department of 
Health. Education and Welfare 
will not give guidelines on the bill 
because it was not discussed in 
Congress. 

The ambiguities lie in many 
areas. For example, should an 
alumna be allowed to see her 
records? The College defines 
"student" as a person who is 
currently enrolled in the College, 
so an alumna will not be able to 
sec them. Wellesley, along with 
many other colleges, enters into 
an agreement with employers that 
all letters of recommendation will 
be kept confidential from the 
students. At the present time. 
Wellesley is not willing to break 
this agreement. 



Megan Christopher, '77, CG 
rep from Pomeroy, asked, 
whether students who are refused 
access lo recommendations would 
be able (o take the case to court. 
Ms. Blake replied that no one 
knows what the procedure should 
be until after the Harvard test 
case. She added that the students' 
cumulative files will be open. 

Ms. Blake said that when 
Council votes on the guidelines on 
Thursday, it will have two op- 
lions. Council members can either 
decide lo do nothing and wait un- 
til Congress decides on the bill, or 
they can rewrite the guidelines. 
She emphasized that there is a 
general feeling at Wellesley thai 
this bill should be dealt with. 

She also pointed out to Senate 
thai there are many disadvantages 
for women in this bill. Because 
employers rely on .the College Tor 
recommendations of candidates 
for positions, this bill will under- 
cut the value of the College as in- 
termediary between the employer 
and the graduates. This role is 
more typical of women's colleges 
than of men's, where a higher 
percentage of the graduates seek 
work through other agencies. 

She added that this bill will in- 
crease the percentage of verbal

academic and business world. Un- 
fortunately, there is a high percen- 
tage or men who are recommend- 
ed in these situations. 

Flo Davis proposed a motion lo 
hold an all-college meeting to in- 
form students as to the 
ramifications of this bill. The mo- 



tion was passed. 

Senate voted lo support Abby 
Franklin. '75, Chief Justice, when 
she appears before Academic 
Council this week. She will an- 
nounce that the Honor Code 
Committee is continuing its in- 
vestigation of the possibility of a 
signed statemenl attesting to each 
student's knowledge of the Honor 
Code. She will also recommend 
thai Council vote to continue the 
procedures of last year's exam 
period for this semester. 

Lianc Callahan, '76, Jr. Vice- 
President for Off-Campus Af- 
fairs, warned against the hazards 
of individual students trying to 
charter buses. She emphasized 
thai students can not be legally 
responsible for the buses, so any

Oxfam plea: 
fast for Harvest 



WELLESLEY NEWS 



" byLaura Becker '77 

Editor's Note: 

The following article is taken 
l„,i„ "Fast For A World Harvest 
on November 21." a brochure 
published by Oxfam America. 

Ovfam- America is the 
American affiliate of the inler- 
nalional Oxford Committee for 
Famine Relief (OXFAM). began 
, n England after World War Two. 
With 30 years of development ex- 
perience, ii has an extraordinary 
[tputulion for productive long- 
term assistance and efficient 
money management. Oxfam- 
tmcricu retains a small, modestly 
paid staff for project delermina- 
lion. preparation of publications 
and educational programs in this 
country. Oxfam-America is a 
nonprofit, tax exempt charitable 
organization. 

Oxfam was the organization 
chosen by Wellcsley Campaign 
for World Hunger to receive 
financial donations because of its 
lou administrative costs, because 
il has no political affiliation, and 
because Oxfam gives aid for 
development as well as direct food 
relief. As a part of the week long 
awareness program beginning 
Wednesday Nov. 20, when con- 
cerned students are asked to fast 
for 24 hours beginning at Wed. 
dinner, students will be able to 
donate to Oxfam through recep- 
tacles at dorm bell desks. There 
■•ill he provision to designate 
money for development and 
money for direct food relief. 

Oxfam funds go to help people 
«ith the will to change their lives 
in their own way ... , 
I) to women in 25 mountain 
villages in Honduras who are 
providing both protein and cash 
for their families by raising rab- 
bits. An Oxfam grant of $3000 is 
benefitting 2100 members of 350 



families. 

2) to buy buffalo for farmers of 
Gujarat, India. Farmers reimburse 
the Oxfam-establishcd revolving 
fund from milk sales. Then 
another farmer can buy another 
buffalo. 

3) to provide good-for-work 
payments and necessary materials 
enabling Tuareg tribesmen to con- 
struct stone walls to hall wind and 
water erosion and replace ground 
water through stored run-ofT. 

One person-one day can make a 
difference. Choose to go hungry 
for one day. Your quiet commit- 
ment may attract (he attention;, 
others arc bound to ask — 
"why?" Why fast? 

1) to identify with the world's 
poor who never become ac- 
customed to hunger, even though 
they live with it from childhood. 

2) to question devoting half of 
U.S. farm acreage to crops for 
feeding livestock. 

3) to contemplate the average 
North American's consumption 
of 5 times the agricultural 
resources — land, water, fertilizer 
— as the average Indian, Nigerian 
or Columbian. 

4) to join with others in a forum 
for serious discussion and pur- 
poseful action about the world 
food problem. 

Half a billion people living in a 
wide tropical band circling the 
earth are chronically malnourish- 
ed. Half of these are children, 
whose growth and mental 
development are being per- 
manently affected. In sub- 
Saharan Africa alone, 10 million 
people face famine and the dis- 
eases accompanying it. Most of 
the people in the world spend 
most of their lime trying to get 
enough to eat. Bui the food scarci- 
ty of today may be only a window 
into the anguish of tomorrow.

Last issue of NEWS: December 6 



On Novemher 18, the various 
task forces of the Residence 
Policy Committee came together 
to discuss the findings of their in- 
vestigations into their respective 
issues 

First on the Committee's agen- 
da was the Residence License. 
Those m the task force working 
on this issue found the general 
tone of the present contract to be 
unfavorable and fell thai Students' 
rights were not being brought out. 
The (ask force is planning lo ob- 
tain a lis( from Mrs Newell of 
ihosc points which musi he includ- 
ed in (he conlrac(. From (here the 
lask force can "(ear apart" (he 
present contract and work on revi- 
sion. 

As a means of comparison, the 
contracts of other schools were 
studied It was found thai 
Welleslev's contract enumerates 
many points thai other schools do 
not spell out. although these 
points arc in fact part of the other 
schools' contracts. It was decided 
that an open forum would be held 
before the new contract is finaliz- 
ed. 

An important point was noted 
at ihis slage of the meeting — the 
return date for ihe signed contract 
and SI 00 deposit for fall rooming 
has been advanced from March 15 



lo March I. 

The second item on the agenda 
was a report from the Winter 
Term task force The original plan 
for Winter Term residence was lo 
have the two students, ie, Ihe stu- 
dent assigned lo the room during 
(he regular school year and Ihe 
student using (he room over 
Winter Term, lo sign a contract 
between the two of them. In ihis 
was. ihe college could not be held 
responsible for loss or damage lo 
student properly. Afler invesliga- 
(ion however, i( was found lhal 
since the college is not liable for 
said loss or damage to studenl 
properly. Ihe college cannot man- 
dale a contract between two 
sludenls. In other words, the 
college cannot enforce such u con- 
ir.ici between two students. The 
Winter Term lask force will meet 
again on Tuesday. November 19 
to work on rooming and storage 
problems. No decisions had been 
made as of press-lime. 

The final issue discussed was se- 
cond semester rooming. Since Ihis 
was the first time Ihe Residence 
Committee exchanged their ideas 
on the subject, no conclusive 
decisions were made. Some ideas 
► discussed were the ideas of priori- 
ty, preference and the needs of 
transfer and present students con- 
cerning rooms available for se- 
cond semester

Editor 's Note: we uphold stand 
Senate officers need push 



(Continued from page 2) 

I would prefer to see the Chief 
Justice receive the same kind of 
treatment she works so hard to af- 
ford others; that is, one is inno- 
cent of charges of irresponsibility 
unless otherwise proven. I 
challenge the NEWS to find 
evidence of want on irresponsibili- 
ty in office on the part of any 
Senate officer, and would like to 
suggest to NEWS that il would be 
interesting lo discover how many 
hours each officer devolcs io her 
job in a single week. 

Melinda L. Little '75 

President, 
College Government. 

Editor's Note: 

NEWS is well aware of the time 
*hich Senate officers invest in 
iheir respective jobs each week. 
The editors are sensitive to the 
amount of lime required by ex- 



tracurricular activities all over 
campus. But we are also aware 
thai by becoming a leader in an 
extracurricular organization, one 
accepts an enormous responsibili- 
ty. It may be that this responsibili- 
ty is unmanageable, but it stands. 

When Ms. Little chides us. and 
suggests we question the vigor 
with which the Chief Justice ap- 
proaches her tasks, rather than 
the performance of these tasks, we 
can only and finally respond that 
because of the "glaring irrespon- 
sibilities" no work has been done 
on the revison of the Honor Code 
... and now we all must pay that 
price. 

If the faculty and Administra- 
tion do not take us seriously it is 
because of situations like ihe one 
with the Honor Code which we 
now face. NEWS stands with its 
editorial.

Editor's Note: 

Molly Butler '77 was accepted 
to participate in Trinity College's 
Semester in Rome for this fall. 
The program, comprised of a 
crosssection of students from 
mostly eastern colleges, offers an 
history, literature and cinema 
courses at its Appennine Hill 
campus. The campus is situated in 
a section of an old convent. Also 
included In the program are 
sidetrips to other areas of Italy. 
Ms. Butler writes on the social 
and psychological ramifications 
of taking part in such a program. 

Life in the old convent on ihe 
Aventine is beginning to lake on a 
normal pace for the forty or so 
Americans ensconced here for the 
fall semester. The shock of sudden 
immersion in a new culture has 
worn off and most of us seem lo 
have come through unscathed. 

After the initial bus lours, Ihe 
barrage of orientation speakers 
and otlr own initial experiences, 
we are forming impressions of the 
Italians. 

Culture Shock 

One of ihe most popular topics 
of conversation is how the Italians 
go about getting things done. To 
those of us used lo the reasonable 
interest in efficiency that one finds 
in the Stales, the complete dis- 
interest in efficiency here is a 
"rude awakening." 

However, if one can extract 
one's emotions from direct in- 
volvement with these minor 



irritations, the result is a bemused 
interest a I some of the 
manifestations of ihe "Italian 
Way." 

Our first esposure look place 
on Alitalia's transatlantic flight 
from Montreal. Earphones were 
distributed for Ihe movie after 
dinner. When ihe movie finally 
started, no sound came through. 
Throughout the plane passengers 
switched channels in vain. The 
rrioyie continued, however, and 
the stewardess's reply when asked 
aboul the difficulty was, "It's 
broken." Her statement was ac- 
companied by a vacant expression 
and a shrug. 

At the end of the flight the 
earphones were collected without 
any indication lhal it had been a 
complete waste of their lime and 
ours. 

The Italian mail system (or 
nonsyslem) is a shining example 
of the "Italian Way." The episode 
in Bergamo this June where 200 
tons of mail were sold for pulp is 
enough lo make any non-Italian 
mailman cringe. 

There are innumerable ex- 
amples of this type lhal one could 
cite; ihe important thing is lo 
decide how lo react to these 
strange Mediterranean facons. 
Solutions? 

Gelling mad does nothing. The 
reaction of one student was the 
following; 

"Throwing your hands up in 
disgust, you say, 'Ah, these 
Italians!' Al least they have good 
wine!'" 



An interesting comment on the 
pari of another student was lhal 
Ihe qualities which are the cause 
of the complete disinterest in ef- 
ficiency arc those which make the 
Italians most charming. They are 
outwardly happy and let life flow 
around them as it has for cen- 
turies. Efficiency is in no way 
iheir number one priority in life. 

The general consensus of the 
group al this point is thai the) w ill 
have a laslc of the Italian life but 
not totally immerse themselves in 
Ihe lives of the Romans. Some of 
ihe girls have already had a run-in 
or two with Ihe "sw arming 
Roman male phenomenon" and 
came away with negative feelings 
for the type. Such experiences are 
enough lo make one heed 
Hamlet's advice lo Ophelia; "get 
Ihee to a nunnery." 

And indeed our little nunnery 
on ihe hill could be a hideoul if 
you chose lo make il so. However, 
there is so much of Rome lhal is 
of interest; lis churches, buildings, 
ruins, stores, restaurants and local 
color. 



"The American student in 
Rome" is a very dissimilar ex- 
perience from that of the Roman 
native. It is wilhoul a doubt an ex- 
tremely enjoyable and worthwhile 
way of passing a small percentage 
ofyour college years, and definite- 
ly worth serious consideration.

Godot: Exciting theatre 
Actresses perform brilliantly 



by Jackie Coleman '77 

Life in Ihc absence of God is 
painful for women, too. Director 
Hope Costm's remarkably fluid 
transposition of "Waiting for 
Godot" from an all-male cast to 
an all-female cast uncovered this 
neglected truth, last weekend, in 
the first presentation of the 
Welleslej College Experimental 
Theater. 

Altered cleverly, it made 
perfect sense. Beckett's prescribed 
bowler hats, with which the men 
in "Godot" continually play as if 
hoping to find themselves under 
the brim, were successfully sub- 
stituted for 1920 cloches. 

Self-deluding Pozzo was not a 
male intellectual, but a woman of 
rich chic. She shows that she may 
be dependant on another person 
to prove her existence. 

"Getting an erection" was 
replaced by "having an orgasm" 
as the templing result of suicide 
by hanging, with all the effect of 
the original preserved. 

The messenger from Godot was 
an angelic girl. Even Godot (God 
in the form of locating one's self 
without the Divine) was im- 
aginable as a woman, perhaps as 
an editor or bank president whose 
many appointments keep her un- 
reachable. 

Costin's enormously creative 
interpretation of the play as all- 
female performed the important 
function of making the existential 
dilemma everyone's. Looking at 
it this w.i\ . sex-blind, is something 
lrul\ new. 

The actors did it justice. Rheba 
Rulkowski as Vladimir and Ellen 



Gcrken as Eslragon held the 
audience with their (hick and 
volatile repartee. Gerkcn in par- 
ticular achieved a successful mix 
of being female and absurd. 

Jan Friedman as Lucky was in 
a class by herself, so thoroughly 
was she the suffering clear-sighted 
dog. From somewhere in herself 
she found the frightening grace of 
her agony dance. 

Detracting from the general ex- 
cellence of the acting was Ellen 
Monsor's portrayal of Pozzo. She 
wasn't convincing. Her unvarying, 
hollow voice lessened Pozzo as a 
force in the play. Her arms moved 
frantically and didn't sustain 



gestures. 

If the female interpretation was 
imposed upon the play from out- 
side, the humor of "Godot" came 
directly from within. The ex- 
change of hats causing the 
characters to mimic each other 
was written - in the original and 
was done here hilariously. Not 
written, but just as called for was 
the dragging of Eslragon's 
problematical boots behind her 
like a tail. The banter of boredom 
incited the laughter intended. 

It was a powerful production. 
Beckett, Costin and company 
pulled us through a lot. 



Pru art show: 
Exhibit of diversity 



by Emily Yoffe '77 



"Women artists are coming out 
of the closet now," observes 
Deena des Rioux. "instead of 
accepting the resistance they 
meet, they arc rebelling against 
it." 

Ms. des Rioux is an artist, and 
publicity director for WEB Inc., a 
net work for women in Ihc visual 
arts. WEB was organized several 
years ago, says Ms. des Rioux, 
"Out of a basic need for women 
artists to have a forum through 
which they can show their work. 

"Artists are discriminated 
against in their own right, being a 



woman artist is double indem- 
nity." 

Since its inception in Chicago, 
WEB has become a world-wide 
organization. The local branch 
boasts 250 members and is in it's 
third season. 

Through November 27, WEB is ■ 
showing Massachusetts women's 
crafts and photography in the lob- 
by of the Prudential building in 
Boston. It is a show of diversity 
and beauty. 




Ellen Gcrken 77, and Rheba Rutkowski *76 wait for Godot in Wailing For Godot, one of the best student 
productions seen recently at Wellcsley College. Joan Friedman 75 gave perhaps the most brilliant perfor- 
mances as Lucky, firing off a monologue with great energy and talent.

• • • 



by Lila Locksley '78 

Jane Clifford is everything the 
Modern Woman is glorified to be: 
intelligent, independent, educated, 
employed. But caught between 
nineteenth century ideals of 
romance and twentieth century 
beliefs of liberation, she is terribly 
unhappy. This clash between 
romance and independence is the 
theme of The Odd Woman as 
novelist Jane Godwin traces 
Jane's search for identity and 
fulfillment. 

A professor of literature at a 
Midwestern University. Jane has 
a Ph.D. a steady job. and a 
married lover. But her spirit lies in 
the Jane Austin world of the 
nineteenth century novels that she 
teaches, rather than the reality of 
her own time. Yearning for pas- 
sion and romance, she longs for 
an idyllic eternal love. But none of 
the men she knows can ever live 
up to her dream. 

George Gessing's novel. The 
Odd Women has a strong in- 
fluence on her. She identifies with 
the characters in his novel — 
women disappointed in love — 
and she too begins to wonder if 
she is "odd"; "odd" in the sense 
"I not making a pair or ruling 
with another. 

The unexpected death of her 
grandmother lakes her back to 
her childhood, her families' al- 
inudcs and values. She un- 
derstands the "Grand Dame" per- 
sonality of her late grandmother 
and the "coy manipulator" role or 
her mother, but realizes that she 
can never be like them. Suddenly. 
in a weeks time, she flies home 
for the funeral, to New York to 
confront her lover, and to Chicago 
lo confront her oldest friend. 
HieSe encounters capture the cs- 
sensc :ot Jane's search for idenlih 
and her quest for happiness 

Gail Godwin develops her 
gallery of female characters well 
while prcseniing disappointingly 
dull men. The different modes of 
remininii) struggling for 
dominance within Jane can be un- 



derstood by women — but Jane's 
search for identity is drawn out, 
and in the end. boring. Godwin 
makes a potentially interesting 
character ridiculous in over 
emphasizing her bizarre fantasy 
wtffld! This contradiction of an 
externally appearing "Woman of 
the World" surrounding a roman- 
tic Jane Austin heroine is 
overstated and tedious. 

The conflict of independence 
and id) llic love is a relevant one in 
the context or our "liberated 
society." Godwin expresses Jane's 
frustrations and emptiness honest- 
ly, but makes Jane an indecisive, 
greyish personality — desiring the 
unattainable, destined for disap- 
pointment. Her exploits arc 
predictable as she never really 
decides the type of woman she 
wants to be. 

The Odd Woman presents 
manj conflicts within the modern 
women, but fails to resolve them 
adequately. In the end. author 
Jane Godwin is left with what she 
started with — an "odd woman" 
searching for her happiness and 
identity. 




Tina Prentiss captures a dusky 
serenity in "Literary Lacework" a 
photo of the Library or Dublin's 
Trimly College. Thcry Mislick 
takes what could be cliche sub- 
jects: color photos of Cape Cod 
and an old-fashioned kitchen at 
twilight, and makes them gently 
evocative and completely her own. 
Linda Washo photographs the 
human body. But her black and 
white photos turn it into an 
organic and mysterious form. 

The crafts range from ceramics, 
to weaving lo jewelry, plastics and 
sculpture. 

Muriel Angeli has woven a 
fisherman's net with shells, that 
hangs from a piece of driftwood. 
Ms. Angeli lakes this wonderfully 
lextural and functional object and 
creates from it a work of art. 

Ellen Kales and Judith Cambell 
reexamine art in domesticity. 
They create pots which turn into, 
respectively, laughing faces, and 
blooming flowers. 

These are only a few of the im- 
ages created by craftswomen of 
New England. The exhibit is hous- 
ed in ten cases that stretch the 
length of the Prudential lobby. 

Though WEB is a feminist 
organization, Ms. des Rioux feels 
there is no difference between art 
men create and art women create. 
"The only difference might be in 
subject matter. For example, 
pregnancy occurs more often in 
women's work." 

WEB met with rcsistence when 
it first began, A few years ago 
thej wanted to stage a show at a 



"What is this anonymous giver 
shit? The only real anonymous 
giver is the gu\ who knocks up 
your daughter!" 

"Putting a fag in prison with all 
men ... now that's what I call 
making the punishment fit the 
crime!" 

"Did you ever wonder why 
Jewish and Italian guys always 
marry while chicks?" 

Boom, boom, boom. The brash, 
offbeat, loo realistic humor of the 
late Lenny Bruce. He was called a 
racist, a religious iconoclast, a 
pervert and a degenerate. Again 
and again, he was arrested by the 
police in the middle of his 
nightclub act. 

But Lenny Bruce was simply a 
man ahead of .his lime, Ho saw, 
understood, and attempted la il- 
luminate the general moral 
hypocrisy of mankind, not 
through didactic preaching, but 
through the self-realization of 
laughter. 

"Lenny." a play written by 
Julian Barry and based on the life 
and words of comedian Lenny 
Bruce, is now being performed at 
the Charles Playhouse on 
Warrenton Street in Boston. Len- 
ny is played by Marly Brill, whose 
charismatic, dynamic style im- 
mediately pulls the audience into 
Ihc emotion of Bruce's life. 

Within the first fifteen minutes, 
the audience knows: Marly Brill is 
not acting his role, he is liv- 
ing it. Every motion, facial ex- 
pression, and vocal tone conveys 
the frustration and constant deter- 
mination in Bruce's repealed 
attempts to say what he wanted lo 
say. and be left alone. 

The general atmosphere of the 
play facilitates the audience's 
emotional involvement. A live

Ihe play work on Iwo levels — the 
members of the audience arc 
watching the play, yet they arc 
also a part of the play. 

In a sense, the audience is in a 
nightclub watching Lenny Bruce's 
act, and they must judge him. 
When he is hustled inlo courl time 
after time, the audience is the 
jury. And, inevitably, their verdict 
is "Innocent," for Julian Barry's 
approach is a ralher obvious 
veneration of Bruce. 

Barry has used in the script 
some of Bruce's most amusingly 
and realistically poignant bits. 
And these bits are juxtaposed with 
accusations of "dirly. dirty, dirty" 
made by self-righteous cops, a 
pacifier-sucking prosecuting at- 
torney, and a sanctimonious 
Catholic woman who is secretly 
excited by saying the very word 
which caused Bruce lo he arrested 
on obscenity charges. 
HYPOCRISY is Ihe big message. 
Lenny Bruce was an entertainer 
whose jokes and skits contained 
some edifying insights; the play 
"Lenny" is an exercise in edifica- 
tion which is sugar-coated with 
Ihe entertainment or humor. Bui, 
a clever script, perceptive direc- 
ting, and Marly Brill's intense im- 
mersion in his role as Lenny save 
the production from being merely 
a biographical canonization or a 
poslhumous vindication of a foul- 
mouthed junkie. 

Yes. the play is manipulative of 
the audience's emotions, but the 
manipulation is effective \ s 



Ihe play progresses, one's! 
responses move up and down ihc 
spectrum of laughter and tears, ! 

The final scene of the play hits 
hard. Ii seems to be a brutal, 
culmination of the irony of| 
Bruce's life, as we see his naked 
corpse propped up on a toilet His 
genitals are completely exposed] 
and Ihe police sarcastically sling a 
towel over his pelvic area before | 
inking their routine photographs. 

"Lenny" is funny, fast moving.} 
and creatively bi/arre. It is distur- 
bing, perplexing, and haunting. If] 
you go lo see "Lenny" at the I 
Charles Playhouse, one thing ii 
certain — you won't forget it."

Alums discuss jobs 



ii«) 



by Laura Becker '77 

"You don'l really fall into jobs, 
you dig your hole first," says Ms. 
Linda Goldberg, a sociology ma- 
jor class of '64. presently a project 
manager for IBM. Hers was 
perhaps ihe besl summary of the 
diverse tips for job hunters given 
during last Monday afternoon's 
seminar, as part of the Many 
Roads conference. 

Ms. Goldberg, who hires for 
her own department, spoke of the 
job hunt from the interviewer's 
perspective. She stressed thai job 
hunting is an exchange where bolh 
individual and organization try to 
match qualifications with 
available positions. She ad- 
vocates: 

1 ) Putting your best foot forward, 
without lying. 

2) Since firms are inundated with 
resumes, it helps greatly if you can 
explain how you are particularly 
qualified for a particular job. 

3) Find out something about the 
company before you write your 
resume and go for an interview. 

4) In preparation for the inter- 
view, have a good opinion of 
yourself and force yourself to be 
somewhat more aggressive than 
usual. Ms. Goldberg closed en- 
couragingly, saying that most 
Wellesley women think logically, 
learn quickly, and communicate 
well. "Remember, people want 
you." 

Ms. Lindsay Miller, an English 
major class of '69, presently a 
reporter for the New York Post 
advocates one: 

1) Hope for luck and friends. 

2) Write innumerable letters. 

3) Be willing to move. 

4) Have nerve. 

"If you really want something you 
have lo hustle. Persistence is a vir- 
tue." 

A philosophy major, Ms. 
Elizabeth Young, cluss of '64 who 
has worked lor public radio and is 



now an educational TV broad- 
caster suggests: 

1) Know people, especially in the 
more closed fields. 

2) Don't sell yourself short; wait 
for what you want if you can af- 
ford to. Don't leap at your first 
offer or be attracted by pseudo- 
glamor, e.g. salary before con- 
sidering other priorities, e.g. loca- 
tion. 

3) The impression given in an in- 
terview's important, Before you 
go for the "real thing" practice 
talking about yourself and your- 
buckground in an unconcious 
way. 

Ms. Barbara Phinney, an En- 
glish and French major class of 
'37, who is presently a personnel 
specialist with the U.S. Civil Ser- 
vice Commission suggests: 

1 ) If you think you're interested in 
a particular field, try it as soon as 
you can e.g. as a summer job. 

2) When moving to a new job 
remember it is a fresh start. Your 
old job's routines, boss' expec- 
tations, etc. are no longer valid. 

3) In writing resumes and during 
interviews, avoid phrases like, "I 
like people." "I like ideas," "I 
like to serve." Be specific referr- 
ing to your talents and capabilities 
and know enough about the 
organization and position you'd 
like to hold to be able to "sell 
yourself" for it specifically.

It belongs to the Atlanta Consor- 
tium, which allows its students lo 
take courses al Moorehouse 
College. Atlanta University, 
Morris Brown College, and the 
Interdenominational Theological 
Seminary. 

Spelman's relationship with 
Wellesley began in 1958, when Dr. 
Albert E. Manlcy, Ihe college 
President, wrote to President 
Margaret Clapp proposing an ex- 
change program. This idea was 
rejected, but Wellesley did par- 
ticipate in a Junior Year In The 
North Program in the early 
I960's. Under this program, nine 
women from the member colleges 
of the United Negro College Fund 
spent their junior year at Seven 
Sisters institutions. This program 
ended in 1966; Dr. Manley, 
however, began a correspondence 
with the President's Office. In 
April, Ms. Bettina Blake, the 
Dean of Academic Programs, 
made a motion al Ihe meeting of 
Council to establish the exchange 
program, which was passed. 

The exchange this year involves 
two students from each institu- 
tion. Plans have begun lo exlend it 
to Ihe administration and the 
faculty, bul these will not be 
finalized until next year or Ihe 
year after. Preliminary visits have 
occurred, however, and certain 
members of the faculty have ex- 
pressed interest in participating.

If anyone wants to change a 
course description, introduce a 
new course, or indicate a time 
preference for scheduling, she or 
he is asked to call the area coor- 
dinator under whose category (hat 
course belongs. Stipends for in- 
structors offering courses have nol 
yet been finalized: instructors may 
check with their area coordinator 
for details. November 25, is the 
deadline for all information to be 
in Tor the final Winter Term 
Guide, which will be published in 
early December. There will also 
be a wine and cheese gcl-logelhcr 
for all instructors in December. 

Winter Term is an opportunity 
for many different talents and ex- 
pertise to come to the fore. One of 
the major facets of the Winter 



Term period is a program of 4:15 
pm and lunchtimc discussions or 
lectures or workshops about 
various topics of interest to (he 
college community. It is hoped 
that by having Ihe program al the 
lunch hour and late afternoon, 
staff people and administration 
will be able to lead and or attend 
these sessions. Students who are 
working on Honor theses are es- 
pecially encouraged lo participate 
in these discussions. Anyone who 
is interested is invited to contact 
Masuma Mamdani in Munger. 

During the evenings, lectures 
and concerts will be emphasized. 
The MIT bus will be operating on 
weekdays, and provisions for 
weekend transportation arc being 
arranged. Anyone who has 
suggestions about social activities 
should call Grctchcn Clark, Beebc 
or Marilyn Chohaney, Severance. 

The Winter Term Committee 
and Ihe Residential Policy Com- 
mitlee are working as efficiently 
as possible lo formulate guidelines 
for rooming, storage, and other 
residence arrangements. Informa- 
tion about these issues will be 
given lo the College Community 
as soon as is possible. 



Degree Committee considers 
nominations for honor awards 



by Lila Locksley '78 



With possible candidates rang- 
ing from Simone de Beauvoir and 
Kaiherine Graham lo Art 
Buchwald and Marc Chagall, the 
Honorary Degree Committee is 
considering nominations from all 
members of the college communi- 

«y- 

In more than half a century. 
Wellesley has granted only twenty 
honorary doctoral degrees. For 
the Centennial Celebration, ten 
such degrees will be awarded. 

The Honorary Degree Com- 
mittee, chaired by Ms. Germaine 
Lafcuille, professor of French, 
and consisting of representatives 
from faculty, students, alumnae 
and trustees, desire suggestions 
for possible candidates of men 
and women of any nationality and 



of any field. As Georgia Murphy, 
student representative on the com- 
mittee staled. "The first honorary 
degree recipient, Madame Curie, 
set a very good precedent for 
future choices." 

This committee will review all 
the nominations and narrow the 
possibilities lo twenty by ncxl fall. 
These possible candidates will 
then be reviewed by the 
nominating committee of the 
Board of Trustees. From their 
recommendations the Board of 
Trustees will chose ten lo be 
honored by Wellesley al the clos- 
ing ceremonies of the Centennial. 

The nominations should be sub- 
milled lo Ms. Lafeuillc before 
January I, 1975. The nomination 
should be a person "to honor and 
be honored by Wellesley."

All- American Kim 
Returns with water 



WELLESLEY NEWS 



bv Patricia Ido '78 



Kimberly Cole. "77, returned lo 
Wellcsley Sunday night with a 
first place medal won in the 
National AAU Water Polo 
Championships held during the 
weekend in Cincinnati, her 
hometown. 

Kim has played with the cham- 
pionship team, the Marlins, since 
starling the sport five years ago 
Four other polo teams from 
Arizona, California, Illinois, and 
Ontario, Canada, competed in 
this year's tournament with two 
Marlin squads. 

According lo Kim. there would 
have been more teams par- 
ticipating, but some decided lo 
boycott the event because of a 
medal dispute lasl year 

The second year Kim played 
with the Marlins, she was named 
captain of ihe team. They played 
in ihe junior nationals that year, 
and Ihen ihe nationals for the nexl 
Ihree years. The 1974 win was the 
first for the Marlins. 

When Kim returned to swim in 
(he nationals, she found the team 
had a new coach with a different 
outlook. Bui playing together 
wilh the other girls was no 
problem, she said. 
"When I Icfl here. I fell thai I 



was in my best shape for water 
polo," said Kim. She credits her 
filness to training with Tom 
Dimicri, member of ihe sociology 
department and former coach of 
ihe Brown water polo team, and 
playing with Ihe Welleslej water 
polo squad. 

Kim ".is captain ol this fall's 
Welleslej team thai finished the 
season wilh a 3-2-1 record. "We 
had a l<>! <>l good freshman 
talent," she said. 

The spring season for the team 
will start soon, and is open to 
anyone interested "and willing to 
practice. 1 ' 

As an athlete, Kim is more 
satisfied playing with the Marlins. 
But for Ihe pleasure of playing, 
she prefers the Wellcsley team. 
"There's more team spirit with 
Wellcsley. If you play wilh a team 
for a long lime, like the Marlins. 
you lend lo become a little more 
individual in your playing," she 
explained 

Water polo is like any other 
team s^ori except that it is in a 
dill ere nl medium. 

\- in basketball, there are 
quarters, free throws, guards, 
passing, and other rules. Also as 
m basketball and hockey, there is 
room for "dirty" play. 
"My rule is that pulling and 



Cole 
polo title 

grabbing arc used by less skilled 
players," Kim said. "If you have 
ihe speed and skill, no one can 
stop you." 

"Basically it's a nice, clean 
game, but it really depends on the 
referees — whether they let you 
gel away with pulling or not," 
commented Kim. 

Besides an All-American rank- 
ing in water polo by the AAU, 
Kim has gone to the 1972 OK to- 
pic trials in swimming the 
backstroke. 

Kim is also planning lo go to 
the Women's Collegiate 
Nationals nexl year in Arizona. 
"I want Wellcsley lo be 
represented there, even though I 
know I can't do anything fantastic 
like lake first." she said. 

Kim continued. "I would like to 
show thai we're nol just a nurd 
school, and also thai an athlete 
i an be conscious and good at 
similes." 

Kim is thinking of majoring in 
French and m i n o r i n g in 
economics. She offered, smiling. 
"My dream is to work for a com- 
pany and be sent back and forth 
between here and France — and 
eventually coach a French team."

Head of the Charles still to come, 
I look back on the season wilh 
mixed emotions. We've spent the 
lasl five or six weeks rowing and 
running nearly every day to 
prepare for twenty minutes of 
continuous power. I (hink we've 
all had a great time. But at the 
same time I can't help but recall 
(he frustrations and anger we all 
felt when we ran up against 
Wellesley's inflexible athletic 
policy. The general policy seems 
lo be that since Wellesley is an 
academic institution, athletics arc 
not important. 

Throughout Ihe season we have 
struggled with scheduling 43 
rowers into Iwo four-person shells 
so thai everyone could row once a 
day. A series of accidents cut our 
number of shells from two to one 
for most of the season. 

The shells, insured against 
theft, are uninsured against ac- 
cidcnls on our lake as well as 
elsewhere. The luck of insurance 
and of transportation has made it 



nearly impossible for us to row 
our own shells in competition, V 
have had to content ourselves «ti| 
the best of some other sch 
worst. 

Money problems have aktj 
plagued the crew team. We «J 
allotted $80 for entry fees forlkj 
year when the fees for ihe H 
alone come lo $40. No provision] 
were made for transportation 
and from races or for crew shirul 
which are a mere $3.25 each. 

We have been willing lo ce»| 
linuc in spite of ihe feeling ltt| 
our greatest competition is 
own administration. 1 think 
our enthusiasm and willingnessu] 
sacrifice much time and enerffl 
should be matched by the collnt 
Instead it seems like a perpelol; 
effort lo kill off the talent 11 
enthusiasm which are Iwo 
Wellesley's most valuabk! 
resources. 

Anyone who is concerned « 
wants more information calli^
